This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.
In the intro, thanks to Paul, Steve and Ryan for their new monthly donations starting this week. Badges are on their way or should be soon. I also remark on my upcoming 5th anniversary as a podcaster for those that don't read the blog.
Listener feedback this week is from Jed in response to the Inner Chapter on why programming is hard. I mention the news cast from the 13th, the piece Bruce Sterling mentions about smart-aleck programmers by Jonathan Edwards.
The feature this week is a monologue discussing my decision to move back to an open stack here in the lab. I mention Dan Gillmor's Salon article discussing the very same thing and my Nowhere to Go rant.
